The eagle-eyed among you might have spotted this already, but for those who had to blink at some point yesterday - MOO's launched Business Cards! As so many of you have asked for the MOO MiniCard magic just that little bit bigger, we felt duty bound to indulge you.

MOO Business Cards are a similar size to standard business cards, but with some very cool differences:

Unlike lots of business cards, MOO gives you the option of a different image on every one.
Using magic technology we've decided to call 'PrintFinity', you can have a different photo, logo or design on every card. So, when people ask you what you do, you can show them - everything! It's a little portfolio in your pocket, a product catalogue, a trading card, anything you like.

You can buy your Business Cards in super-short runs
We're an experienced bunch at MOO HQ. We've all worked in different companies before, and we still have the business cards to prove it. The traditional way is to buy business cards in batches of 250, 500, even 1000 or more, and no matter how hard you network, its impossible to get through so many before something changes - your phone number, your job title or even the company you work for. We realised if we still have stacks of old cards sitting about, you probably have too.

So, we give you the option to buy in smaller batches of 50:
- it's more economical (much less waste)
- it gives you the chance to update your cards as you update your products or your details
- it's greener - even if you're using virgin stock, at least you're not throwing it away!

And talking of 'green' - there are now two paper stock options available
We're slightly obsessed with paper at MOO, and take a great deal of care looking for the best paper, with the best feel, print quality and outstanding credentials. We've decided on two different stocks for our Business Cards:

MOO 'Classic' - which is sustainably sourced and elemental chlorine free. Matt-laminated, it has a smooth and sturdy feel. It's the same stock you've seen and loved on MiniCards.

MOO 'Green' - which is 100% recycled, 100% recyclable and biodegradeable. It's totally chlorine free, uncoated, crisp white, and prints nicer than any other recycled paper we've seen. (And we've seen a lot.)

The cards come beautifully packaged
Every pack of cards comes with a free Business Card holder. Designed by MOO, the box is made of recycled pulp board and fits in a briefcase or bag. We've even included two (recycled) dividers too, so as you empty the box of your own cards, you can fill it up with the ones you're given, without mixing them up. (Another problem we've had ourselves, that we thought it would be good to fix).

So, there you have it. MOO Business Cards - as nice as MiniCards, but bigger, and a little bit different. We like them, and we hope you'll like them too.

Oh! And if you want to see what other people have been doing, check out our ideas pages. See what other people have made, and how you could use the cards yourself.

Great idea!

But I use the minicards AS business cards. Their very uniqueness in size, shape, and color ensures that people will not forget about me in a pile full of regular business cards.

yup, lots of people use MiniCards as business cards, and hopefully they still will :)

There are two things about them that people like
1) The size
2) The fact you can have a different image on each one.

But for some people, 2 is more important than 1. They're not always in a situation where a MiniCard is appropriate, so lots of people have been asking for similar functionality, but on a card a bit bigger.

We're excited to be able to offer the stuff we do for standard Business Cards, because at the moment, very often the only alternative is to order 500 or more, and all the same.

Don't worry though, we wont stop doing MiniCards, we still love them. Alot.

Very cool. Any chance buying a flickr pro acct will get us free Moo Business cards OR regular Moo cards at any point? (Both are great, so don't see me as complaining, ok?)

This is a fantastic idea. I'm in the process of designing a business card at the moment and will place an order as soon as I'm finished. w00t!

I'm completely thrilled by this news. Fantastic!

When are we getting gift certs for the business cards? I've got someone in mind already.
3rd Jul, 2008 23:10 (UTC)
good point. I will chase this up. We still have a few bugs to fix, but hopefully in the coming weeks. Sorry for the delay.

As soon as I saw them I ordered.! i couldn't put my work logo on the back, I couldn't resize it, but aside from that I love this product. Of course I also ordered more moos too.
